January’s annual financial literacy College Cash seminars were our most successful to date! Thanks to all of the students, parents, and education professionals who showed up at our two sessions in Baltimore City on January 28th and in Columbia, MD on January 30th. This year’s College Cash was sponsored by SECU, BB&T and Howard County General Hospital. Three lucky students who attended the seminars will win College Cash scholarships. The first two winner announcements will be made in May and June. The grand prize winner announcement will be made in July at the awards ceremony.
Senior Program Manager, Angela Harrison, and Program Manager, Jennifer Bauer, disbursed information about student loans, scholarships, and making the right college choice to over 300 attendees. One student said, “the breakdown and simplicity of the information was very realistic and made me feel good about the steps I’ve already taken. It was also a very welcoming environment.” Look out for our College Cash event all about student loan repayment later in the year that will be geared toward older students.
